family farm, transfering process, rural families, communication
Farm families across South Dakota shared, in recent surveys, how they are passing on the family farm, communicating with each other, and cooperating in decision-making and responsibilities on the farm and in the home. Their experiences may help your family begin talking about these issues, by suggesting questions to discuss together – about farm decision-making, responsibilities, communication, land, and livestock ownership, and transfer plans.
